Ike Davis to be recalled by Mets, according to report
The New York Mets are expected to recall first baseman Ike Davis after a brief, successful stint in Triple-A, according to multiple reports.
The New York Daily News reported that Davis will be with the team in Milwaukee on Friday, when they will face the Brewers.
Davis had been sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas after struggling mightily through the first two-plus months of the season. When he was sent down on June 9, he was batting .161 with five homers, 16 RBI and a .243 on-base percentage.
At Triple-A, Davis worked with manager Wally Backman and hitting coach George Greer to fix a glitch in his swing. He batted .293 with seven homers and 13 RBI in 21 games with Las Vegas. He homered in each of the last two games.
